tradition that in this case you democrats would vote for nancy pelosi. and so we were trying to keep track of how many votes might go against john boehner. he got 220. that is a narrow margin of victory, but it was a victory. and it's really an indication of the struggle that he has had with some of the more conservative members of his own conference who have not been pleased with all of the things that have been going on and there's also sort of a typical rebellious name dhaur can happen when you bring a body together that represents all ends of the country. so, surprises, things like the name colin powell being put forward, the constitution does not say that you have to be an elected member of congress to serve as speaker of the house. so, as out of the ballpark that might be, it was not something that couldn't -- it was conceivable that that was not something that would, you know -- colin powell was clearly not going to be the speaker but a reason why someone who would name someone who was not a member. and also alan west, a republican of florida, who was defeated. so, it is a mom

sign on to a promise the president made last year not to raise tax rates and what about nancy pelosi's pledge pledge. >> nick from the daily caller, did republicans miss a move here? >> i think they missed a opportunity if you go back to 2010 when they sweep the house and had the president in a position where he could support a permanent extension of the bush tax cuts, and they only went for the the extension for two years. david: why is that? only go for two years as opposed to a major change in the tax code? >> maybe they were hoping that they would win the presidential election in 2012 and then have a upper hand event. but you know, they didn't go for the permanent rates, the bush era tax rates when they had the chance in 2010 and the sequester, the automatic spending cuts getting lost in the conversation are something they pretty much set up with the democrats in 2011. >> well, here specifically, here is about the millionaire cut off figure because of course, now the president says compromise going out to 4,000. here is what pelosi said in may of 2012 to speaker john boehner. democ

president has called all four congressional leaders. reid, mcconnell, boehner and pelosi. . joining me to talk more, we have peter alexander standing by at the white house as well as nbc's mike viqueira on capitol hill. some verbal smackdown, basically flipping the lights back on and harry reid taking to the floor to eviscerate speaker boehner. >> the sad part is you often seen the floor opened that way. mitch mcconnell being later today. i'm sure we'll hear something later. to hear it two days after christmas and a matter of days before we go through the fiscal cliff, obviously not encouraging. harry reid says time is running hout. he doesn't know if they could go through the legislative hurdles. if they have the votes around here, they can legislate the sky is green and the grass is blue. that's not an issue. what harry reid is really saying is mitch mcconnell, get on board, don't try to filibuster. of course they're talking about a bill that had raise capital on couples making more than $250,000 a year, and do a few other nuts and bolts that are deemed the bare minimum that the preside

. occasionally steny hoyer and nancy pelosi broke on a war-funding bill. but for the speaker, one thing we can't miss on that, john boehner doesn't have to vote. he chose to do that, chose to show i'm supporting this, even though we're having this conversation. it's a fascinating dynamic. >> one day we hope you'll get a break, luke russert, thank you very much. >>> after the break, so crisis ave averted, right? most americans won't see their tax rates go up, they will see less in their paychecks. and that's not to mention what this deal will do for the deficit. we'll talk fiscal realities when ezra klein joins us next on "now."

from california, the hon. dianne feinstein. >> mr. speaker, nancy pelosi, mrs. bush, harry reid, leader mcconnell, secretary of state hillary clinton and my colleagues in government this is a special day to honor a special person in a special place. for many years i have followed tragedies and victories of this uncommonly courageous and persistent woman. in 1988 she quickly rose to be the voice of democracy in burma creating the lead for democracy, elections followed in 1990 when her party won 80% but that joy turned to tragedy and the the military junta and aung san suu kyi spent 3 decades under house arrest unable to visit her dying husband. in 1996 i recall senator bill cohen approaching with senator mccain to sponsor a burma sanction bill, sanctions were put in place in 1997 and only loosened in july of this year. senator mcconnell became one of aung san suu kyi's chief advocates and we continue to work on behalf of the people of burma. in 2003 following an assassination attempt senator mcconnell and i worked to pass an important man the remains in place today, an effort to bring ab

had to say what's my plan b? his plan b is a plan nancy pelosi embraced a few months ago. boehner couldn't get enough of his right flank onboard and pelosi was whipping votes against her own plan among democrats to embarrass boehner. so the politics worked out well for pelosi. it's a total mess, dysfunctial and both parties are not covering themselves in glory. >> got to leave it there. always good to see you. >> thanks. >> to ed henry in honolulu where the president is set to depart tonight. we got breaking news from the speaker and i believe -- they said we have a couple deals on the table. it's your turn, senate. >> yea eric, that's where the ball is going now. but what i think the speaker and maybe majority leer eric cantor are leaving out is the reason all eyes turned to the senate is the speaker can't get the job done thursday on plan b. plan a is essentially the big deal, the $4 trillion debt plan. i was speaking a short time ago to a white house official that happened they believe the president moved halfway towards the republicans starting at only want to go raise taxes o

to clean up its act. speaker nancy pelosi helped create the oce as a solution. in just four years they have done more than 100 investigations of lawmakers raising serious questions about possible congressional misdeeds. in 37 of those investigations, the oce referred them on to the actual house ethics committee for further review, meaning that in those 37 cases, the oce found reason to believe that house ethics and sometimes federal laws were likely violated. so why exactly does congress want to kill it? well, actually, that's hard to say. folks like these who have in the past voted to cut the oce budget or limit its powers refused to talk to us. for those who would talk, opinions were mixed. >> i think it's important there be some way for the public, for someone outside of congress to raise issues about the conduct of members of congress. one of the things that -- is it oce, oce has sent to the ethics committee was actually pretty flimsy. >> i supported it the first time, i'll support it again. >> i don't think it's working well. >> is there anything oce has done specifically tha

to harry reid and nancy pelosi and he spoke with them about everything that was going to take place tonight. what else do we know with how he responded to what's happening? >> well, it's interesting. the president chose today to have one of those campaign-style events with ordinary americans in the white house and an auditorium in the white house compound today. the president sort of came out in a jovial, joking matter. he painted a picture of a deal that was all but done, but he got in a lot of jabs, subtle and otherwise, at republicans and really angered folks. john mccain said he didn't know whether he was sad or angered by what the president had said. cooler heads have obviously prevailed here. and we do know that the president had been on the phone working this, even though joe biden was sort of the front man, flying point, if you will. and negotiations with mitch mcconnell. so, sure, the president has been very involved. he, you know, he has led this campaign style effort to try to force republicans' hand. again, many of those folks are a little bit disappointed that that thre

said nancy pelosi would have to add a lot of votes. a bill could come over from the senate and if there is a problem amongst house republicans or enough of them object, john boehner could amend it and send it back to the senate. from the house. that would put it in delay. >> they have all day tomorrow to work it out. one last thing i've been told that some could make the sale to members at 12:01 a.m. that any deal that comes over from the senate would be voting -- not voting for a tax hike, would be voting to cut taxes because then we're over the cliff and everything would expire. so interesting optics. i think it should be really known by folks watching tonight just because something is going to come out of the senate late tonight, early tomorrow morning, there's no guarantee it has a clear way forward. it's without some sort of drama at the very end. >> we thank them for their updates, as well, at 7:10 here on the east coast. the drama continues. we should also make one more quick note about what's going on with hillary clinton because a statement was released within the last co
